Hollywood actor, director, writer and producer Garry Marshall is gone at age 81.

The comedy giant died at 5 p.m. PT Tuesday from complications of pneumonia following a stroke at a hospital in Burbank, Calif., his representative Michelle Bega confirmed to USA TODAY.

A beloved figure in show business, Marshall leaves behind a legacy as a hitmaker on television and in films, a comedian with impeccable delivery, and a warm personality to those he encountered.

He was born in the Bronx to a tap dance teacher and an industrial film director. “My mother was special, she gave us our humor,” Marshall recalled in an interview with USA TODAY in April. “I remember her saying, ‘Never be boring.You gotta entertain people.’ And at 16 years old, I didn’t know what boring meant. I said, ‘What is boring, Ma?’ She said, ‘Your father,’ ” he said, chuckling.

Ghostbuster Backflips Over Cop and Cop threathens to arrest filmer, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

So, no doubt the guy back flipping off the cop car should get a free ride to police station, have a few laughs, sober up and go home in the morning. I am down with that. Maybe pay a fine or something…

But the cop threatening to arrest the person for filming it to me is out of line. What do you think? It’s out in public and I don’t see any harm in filming it. Hell, it may keep a few over zealous cops in line if they knew someone was filming it. In fact, I can’t quite make out what the one cop says but it’s something along the line of “watch it man he is filming it” or something like that. Police cars have cameras in them, traffic lights have cameras on them. Almost every department store you go into has cameras in them. So what if someone is filming a cop giving someone a hard time… It makes interesting news stories and Roddy King’s ass might not have got beat down like it did the first time of the cops had known they were being filmed…

So film on…
